Preparing for the LHC Restart: An Overview of the ATLAS Experiment and its Related Networking Needs
Time 10/07/09 08:45AM-10:00AM
I will present the current status of the ATLAS high-energy physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and information about it's revised schedule and running plans. I will cover the ATLAS experiment in some detail including the impact of the prodigious amount of data (multiple Petabytes) that it will produce each year. I will then discuss work that has been ongoing at the University of Michigan, and elsewhere, to prepare for the LHC restart. Because of the large size of ATLAS, its global distribution and the huge amount of data produced, networks and their effective use, are a critical aspect of this preparation. I will cover the various research projects that have an intersection between the network and high-energy physics and conclude with the outlook for the year-end LHC turn-on given our preparations to-date.
